18 Sunshine State Standards (SSS) Developed by committees of practicing classroom teachers and curriculum specialists and adopted by the State Board of Education, the Florida Sunshine State Standards (SSS) are broad statements of what students should know and be able to do. Teaching the Sunshine State standards is an important aspect of educational accountability. The Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test® (FCAT), the foundation of statewide educational assessment and accountability, measures SSS benchmarks in reading, writing, mathematics, and science. High-quality, standards-focused instruction provides students the knowledge and skills needed to be successful on FCAT. For more information on FCAT and the Sunshine State Standards 18
